Toucan do this encouragement card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card made using products from Time For Tea Designs.

To start the card I took the Toucan Do This clear stamp set and stamped out my images using Memento Tuxedo black ink on to Neenah 80lb solar white cardstock. I then coloured the using Copic markers.

I die cut the images using the coordinating dies and set the images to one side.

Next I worked on the background. I took the Un-be-leaf-able stencil and adhered it to my card base using some low tak tape. I masked off some of the stencil that I did not want to use. I took Distress Oxide inks in Dusty Concord, Broken China and Twisted Citron and blended them over the stencil.

Once the ink was dry I adhered my images on to the card with a tape runner and stamped the sentiment. To complete the card I added some sequins for some sparkle and shine.

Thanks for dropping by.

Bee card for a sweet friend

Hello I hope you are well and having better weather than we are at the moment.

Today I am sharing a card made for Time For Tea Designs showing how to stretch your stamps by changing how you use an image. I used the Bee Happy clear stamp set.

I started by stamping the floral background. This is a red rubber background stamp from Simon Says Stamp called ‘gerbera daisy background.’

I used Versafine onyx black ink to cover the whole of the stamp, then placed my card base directly on top. I rubbed firmly all over and the lifted it off. This left a perfect impression.

Next I took a piece of Neenah classic crest 80lb solar white card and stamped out the bee images along with the honey pot and the spoon using Memento tuxedo black ink. I then coloured them in with my Copic markers and die cut them out.

Here are the original stamps so you can see what I changed.

I wanted the bees to be holding the spoon and honey pot rather than the flowers and letter. There are two ways of doing this. You could mask the images or the way I did this was to cut away the flowers and letter from the bees, leaving the hands to hold the pot and spoon.

To add some more colour to the card I cut a thin strip of black and yellow card and adhered to the edge of my card base with a tape runner. I then used the same card to make a banner and stamped the sentiment using Altenew pigment ink ‘ultimate metalic gold’

I adhered the banner with a tape runner and bees to using foam squares and added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen over the bees wings to add some sparkle and complete the card.

Thanks for dropping by. Take care for now.

Toucan Of My Afftection Card.

Hello.

Today is an exciting day for Time For Tea Designs as it is new release day. I am sharing a shaker card featuring the new clear stamp set Toucan Do This available now.

I started the card by ink blending a card panel to fit my card base with Distress Oxide inks Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. I flicked some Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour paint from a paintbrush to add some sparkle and set this aside to dry. Once dry I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink.

Next I stamped the images using the Memento ink I selected the birds, tree branch, hearts and leaves on to some Neenah 80lb cardstock and coloured them with my Copic markers. I then cut them out with my scan n cut machine.

I used a circle die to cut out a window from the green panel and adhered some acetate on the back of the panel with a tape runner. I then adhered the images around the window with my tape runner.

To make the shaker element I placed 3 layers of foam tape around the window and around the edges of the card panel. I used an anti static powder tool around the window area then filled it with sequins. I used the Mardi Gras Parade mix from Doodles Paper Playground.

I then released the foam tape and adhered a card base to the panel to complete the card.

I hope you like it as much as I do.

Mermazing Birthday Card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs. I used some of the clear stamps from the Mermazing release. Available exclusively from Create and Craft

I decided to use watercolours for this card. I started by taking a piece of watercolour card. This is Arches cold press. I took my largest Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and drew with pencil around the outside to give me the shape and area of the panel to watercolour. Next I stanped the images using Versafine black ink.

Once the ink was completely dry I used my Gansai Tambi watercolours to colour the images and the background.

Once the panel was dry I placed the circle die over the top and run it through my Big Shot die cutting machine.

Next I took a 6″x 6″ card base and stamped the sentiment at the bottom. To complete the card I adhered the watercolour panel using double sided tape and added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Take care for now.

Mermaid hello card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card using a stamp set called Swimming by to say Hi from Time For Tea Designs.

To make the card I started by stamping the cute mermaid image from the stamp set on to some Xpress it blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I them coloured the image using my Copic markers. I used the coordinating die and ran it through my big shot die cutting machine.

Next I used a piece of white cardstock and selected three colours of Distress Oxide inks, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China and Salty Ocean to blend the background. Once I had done this I used a distress sprayer to spritz some water on to the blended panel and soaked up the excess water with a piece of paper towel. I then took some Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour paint from the starry colors collection, mixed it with some water and flicked it over my background with a paint brush. This added some nice shine.

I then adhered my mermaid to the centre of the card using a tape runner before stamping my sentiments. I took the ‘swimming by’ and ‘to say’ sentiments and stamped them above the mermaid then stamped the ‘Hi’ sentiment below her. I also stamped some fish in the background using Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke.

To complete the card I added a few sequins.

The swimming by to say hi stamp set is available to purchase exclusively on Create and Craft TV, follow the link below and take a look at the other cute clear stamp and die sets available. International delivery is available.

Unicorn Shaker Card

Hello.

It’s been a little while since I shared a shaker card but when I saw that Doodles Paper Playground were having a Birthday giveaway and contest I decided it was the perfect opportunity to share one to join in the fun #showmeyourshaker.

I immediately though of my cloud dies from Honey Bee stamps and some unicorns would be perfect for a shaker. This is how I made the card.

I started by cutting a card panel from Neenah 80lb to 4 and 1/4 by 5 and a 1/2 inches. I also cut 2 pieces of fun foam to the same size.

I placed 3 of the cloud dies from the Honey Bee Stamps set ‘Partly Cloudy’ on to my piece of card. Once I was happy with the placement I ran it through my Big Shot die cutting machine.

Next I used Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade to add some colour to the card panel. I then used a Distress sprayer to spritz the panel with water and used a price of kitchen towel to soak up any excess.

I stamped out some images from The My Favourite Things stanp set Magical Unicorns and coloured them using Copic markers. I used my Scan n Cut to them out.

I stamped a sentiment from the MFT set and I adhered the images to the panel.

Next I worked on the shaker element. I adhered the 2 pieces of fun foam together. I then lined up the clouds from the front panel and cut 3 sections out of the fun foam that were slightly larger than the clouds.

I took a piece of acetate and adhered it to the back of the front card panel and adhered the fun foam panel on top of the acetate. Once the glue was dry I filled each of the cloud holes with sequins.

I took a card base and used the Distress inks to blend ink where the clouds would sit. Once this was day I brushed over the area with an anti static powder tool.

To complete the card I adhered the card base on top of the fun foam.
